Aaron Worley is an abstract expressionist from Waxhaw, North Carolina. He has been making figurative and abstract art that involves multiple drawings and sketches. Limbs are often placed where they normally do not belong, and faces are sometimes distorted or multiplied. He views this process as a never-ending quest to find the figure that is trying to escape from the prison of the paper or canvas.
"Art to me is ripping thoughts from my brain and putting them onto the paper or canvas. I value destruction and mistakes. The most common motif represented in my art is the boxing figure, acting as a metaphor and an acting object; it serves as a "clueing in" for the symbols of life, death, the spirit and the man versus self/opponent."
He currently resides and works in Nashville, Tennessee.
